Work for Change

When we look at the world and all the things that need to be fixed, it can feel both overwhelming and frustrating. We need to remember that we cannot control others. We can only control ourselves. Once we realize that, change can begin.


Gracious God, sometimes life
can seem overwhelming
and like there are no answers
to the problems we’re facing.
After all, I am only one person
and really can’t do much.
But God, with you by my side,
I can take the first step toward change.
May my faith serve as a driving force and a support
as I set out to do what is mine to do
in order to make the world a better place.


Take one step toward making a difference concerning an issue about which you feel strongly.
